no longer + not yet

before new years eveThis quote hit me hard this year:

Honor the space between no longer and not yet.

It’s an interesting time; after Christmas and before New Years.

A time of sleeping in, forgetting the diet, wearing the house slippers all day, dazing off, catching up on television shows and movies, lounging in the lost art of conversations with family and friends and, well, hibernating.

I think of pillows and blankets when I think of the final days of 2016.

For me, this is a time of deep contemplation.

Here’s a question for ya: is there anything you want to leave behind in 2016?
Any experience, lesson, hardship, circumstance?

And what does 2017 look like to you?
What do you want to see, feel, experience this coming year?

What Street Level Miracles do you want to show up in your life?

Sure there’s fun, parties and hanging out with your loved ones.
But, these questions are where the gold lies. This is where it’s at!
Take these last few breaths of 2016 with curiosity; like a discovered cove or a hidden space where the clock stops and you see Simplicity in all her magnificent colors. The ponderings that arise may actually surprise you. 🙂

Onward,
I walked slow today
